Thoughts, can bring you a sense of peace, or a sense of anxiety and fear. Gods thoughts for us and our thoughts and imaginations we bring into the sense of well-being.

Our minds helps the physical body. Let His thoughts be our thoughts. The thoughts for good. He has more thoughts about us than the sand in the seashore. In Hebrew the heros of faith had Gods thoughts and they did mighty exploits.

Ps 94:19 In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul! AMP


Psalms 94:19 Whenever my busy thoughts were out of control, the soothing comfort of your presence calmed me down and overwhelmed me with delight.  TPT

Isa 55:8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.  AMP


Isa 55:8  "I don't think the way you think. The way you work isn't the way I work." God's Decree.

John 2:24 But Jesus [for His part] did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all [men];

25 And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man [needed no evidence from anyone about men], for He Himself knew what was in human nature. [He could read men's hearts.]  AMP


JOHN 2:24 Jesus however did not make much of their apparent support - he wouldnt entrust himself to them since he knew all things.  

25 He knew that their brief belief was simply based on the surface hype of the moment and not upon that which he was about to redeem in their innermost being. He knew them  better than what they knew themselves! He had no need for anyones theory about the human species to confirm what he always knew to be true about them.    MIRROR

Rom 2:16 On that day when, as my Gospel proclaims, God by Jesus Christ will judge men in regard to the things which they conceal (their hidden thoughts).  AMP

HEB 4:12  The message God spoke to us in Christ, is the most life giving and dynamic influence in us, cutting like a surgeons scalpel, sharper than a soldiers sword, piercing to the deepest core of human conscience, to the dividing of soul and spirit; ending the dominance of the sense realm and its neutralizing effect upon the human spirit. In this way a persons spirit is freed to become the ruling influence again in the thoughts and intentions of their heart. The scrutiny of this living Sword-Logos detects every possible disease, discerning the bodys deepest secrets where joint and bone-marrow meet. MIRROR

Psalms 139:17-18 Every single moment you are thinking of me! How precious and wonderful to consider that you cherish me constantly in your every thought! O God, your desires toward me are more than the grains of sand on every shore! When I awake each morning, you're still with me. TPT


Ps 139:17  Your thoughts how rare, how beautiful! God, I'll never comprehend them!

18 I couldn't even begin to count them   any more than I could count the sand of the sea. Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you! MSG

Col 1:21 You yourselves are a case study of what he does. At one time you all had your backs turned to God, thinking rebellious thoughts of him, giving him trouble every chance you got.

22 But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God's side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence.

23 You don't walk away from a gift like that! You stay grounded and steady in that bond of trust, constantly tuned in to the Message, careful not to be distracted or diverted. There is no other Message just this one. Every creature under heaven gets this same Message. I, Paul, am a messenger of this Message.  MSG

Acts 15:8 And God, who can't be fooled by any pretense on our part but always knows a person's thoughts, gave them the Holy Spirit exactly as he gave him to us. MSG

Hebrews 11:17 Faith operated powerfully in Abraham for when he was put to the test he offered up Isaac. Even though he received God's promises of descendants, he was willing to offer up his only son!

18For God had promised,

19Abraham's faith made it logical to him that God could raise Isaac from the dead, and symbolically, that's exactly what happened.  TPT

HEB 11:20 power of faith prompted Isaac to impart a blessing to his sons, Jacob and Esau, concerning their prophetic destinies. TPT

Psalms 3:4 I have cried out to you, Yahweh, from your holy presence. You send me a Father's help. Pause in his presence

5So now I'll lie down and sleep like a baby then I'll awake in safety, for you surround me with your glory.

6Even though ten thousand dark powers prowl around me, I won't be afraid.  TPT


Ps 3:4 With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Phil 4:8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

9 Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you. AMP


PHIL 4:8 Now let this be your conclusive reasoning: consider that which is true about everyone as evidenced in Christ. Live overwhelmed by Gods opinion of you! Acquaint yourselves with the revelation of righteousness; realize Gods likeness in you. Make it your business to declare mankinds redeemed innocence. Think friendship. Discover how famous everyone is in the light of the gospel; mankind is in Gods limelight! Ponder how elevated you are in Christ. Study stories that celebrate life.

9 These things are consistent with all that I teach and live; you can confidently practice what you hear and see in me. The peace that inevitably follows this lifestyle is more than a fuzzy feeling; this is God himself endorsing our seamless oneness.  MIRROR

2 TIM 2:7 Ponder my words; the Lord will give you insight which will inspire you in every contradiction that you face.

8 Make my gospel emphasis the focus of your thoughts: Jesus Christ is the seed of David, he is the promised Messiah; his resurrection from the dead is the proof.  MIRROR    ↕↕↕

2 Tim 2:7 Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything.

Constantly keep in mind Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] risen from the dead, [as the prophesied King] descended from David, according to the good news (the Gospel) that I preach. AMP

Rom 8:7 Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing.

8 And God isn't pleased at being ignored.

9 But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won't know what we're talking about. MSG

Heb 12:3 Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds.  AMP
